Home meets are testers for track athletes

This week in Hailey, Carey

High school track and field season is winding down to its state-qualifying district competitions a week from now and the State 4A and 1A track meets in the Boise area May 18-19.

But first, two meets closer to home this week will challenge student-athletes from Carey, Camas County of Fairfield, the Community School of Sun Valley and Wood River High School of Hailey.

The Northside Conference finals are today, Wednesday, May 2 at 2 p.m. at Derrick Parke Memorial Field, Carey. And the Bob Shay Invitational is Thursday, May 3 at 4 p.m. at Phil Homer Field in Hailey.

Expected to compete at Wood River's only home track meet of 2012 are Buhl, Burley, Canyon Ridge and Minico.

Last week's weather-impacted meets were tune-ups.

( On Wednesday, April 25, Community School junior sprinter Ellie Swanson represented her school well during an 11-school small-school competition on the ISDB oval in Gooding. She won the 200-meter dash (29.1 seconds) and 400m dash (1:03.9), and placed second in the 100m (13.6).

( Wind and rain last Thursday brought a premature end to the 10-school Dairymen's Invitational meet for 1A, 2A and 3A schools on the same ISDB track. The field events were completed in addition to the sprint medley relay, high hurdles and 3200m distance run.

Camas County and Carey athletes were among the leaders Thursday.

At the Minico meet

On a very windy afternoon, Wood River High School sent a delegation of 23 to Friday's 16-school Minico Invitational swept by the Rigby Trojans.

Rigby dominated the boys' meet with 161.5 points (84 field, 33.5 distances) over second-place Kimberly (87). The Trojan girls (117 points, 39 in field, 31 relays) nipped second-place Jerome (113.5, 39 distances and 33 sprints) by a small margin.

Cheyenne Swanson placed second in discus finals (104-0) and eighth in shotput (31-10.5).

The Wolverine girls were seventh in 4x400m relay with Nicole Pratt, Kenya Schott, Janel Passey and Dani McLaughlin (season-best 4:52.05). Chase England's sixth place in 3200m (10:41.0) was the only boys' points.

Athletes setting personal bests Friday were Taylor

Douthit, Alexis Gonzales, Emmett Say and Ketchum Wilt. Still bouncing back from a hamstring injury, junior Ian Keys ran 11.38 seconds in the 100m dash preliminaries.

Senior distance runner Ben Stout competed in Boise Friday and Saturday and ran 2:02 after being tripped in the 800m, and 4:26 in the 1600m, reported coach Monte Brothwell.
